Solar energy comes from radiation from the sun, which is absorbed and produced by solar panels. Consumers can choose between a grid-tied or an off grid solar system when converting to solar power. Grid-tied is popular among solar system owners because they can rely with the rest of the city on the power grid while off-grid solar system means users are autonomous in supplying electricity to their home. This form of solar power relies on batteries as opposed to a grid-tied device to store the energy harnessed by the solar panels.
